Idlewild have revealed the tracklist for their upcoming album.
The 12-track Everything Ever Written launches on February 9 and will be their first record since ending their five-year hiatus in September last year. Their last release was 2009’s Post Electric Blues.
To mark the announcement, the band have made the track Come On Ghost available to stream. Hear it below.
Their eighth album was produced by the group’s guitarist Rod Jones and was mixed by John Agnello who they worked with previously on 2002’s The Remote Part. It also marks recording debuts by new keyboardist Luciano Rossi and bassist/guitarist Andrew Mitchell.
Jones recently said the band decided to take a break in 2009 as making music had become a chore.
He told TeamRock: “I never thought that the band had run its course, but I could tell that we weren’t in the right place to make a good record if we didn’t take a break. It didn’t feel like the end, we just didn’t know how long we’d be away.
“I guess it what’s we do for a living, and it had started to feel like a job in some ways, so once we removed that ‘job’ aspect of it, suddenly it felt like fun again.”
The record can be pre-ordered direct from the band’s PledgeMusic page, where they’re offering a range of packages.
They’ve lined up a UK and Ireland tour for March which takes in seven dates.
